“CODA Africa is just so hot right now … You simply cannot think about having a party without at least trying to sign them up for the evening’s entertainment … CODA Africa is the city’s most in-demand band”
Bianca Coleman, Cape Argus

“CODA Africa are SA’s hottest Fusion Band – they really went down superbly – my clients are still raving about them. The band is made up of 4 beautiful girls (violin, vocalist, cello and sax) and a gorgeous male DJ.

The instruments are electric so it has a classical feel but is super vibed up. They have an incredible stage presence and they know how to work the crowd! They play all originals and it is so different to anything I have heard before – which makes them even more out of the ordinary. Great for a background vibe or to get the part started”
Candice Nethercott, Investec

“We are so happy with the response from the CODA Africa performances over the 3 days – thank you for the huge role you all played in the success of the Cape Town Whisky Live Festival!

We really appreciate all of the EXTRA’s and hope you get LOTS of future gigs from the festival”
Whisky Festival CTICC
